Hwæt! Be it known unto all that on Sæturnesdæg, the second day of Weodmónaþ 2016 C.E., the folk of the Ealdríce gathered at Whitthenge Heall in Richmond, Virginia for the holytide of Hláftíd, or Loaf-Tide. Glad were we to have as our guests Hróþbeorht, his wife Crystal, their daughter, Kumari, and Xander.
With the barley-rent given to Béowa, god of the barley harvest, and to his wife Béole, goddess of the honeybee hive, a great gebéorscipe was held in the hall. Amid the merrymaking, Hróþbeorht was welcomed into the Ealdríce as a leorenre.
May the gods speed the Ealdríce, Hróþbeorht Leornere, and our Théodish Belief and may Béowa and his bride Béola bless our path forward!
